    I bought myself a guitar with some extra strings and a devilish headstock. I also scored some new eurorack modules. If you thought buying guitars were bad...I miss my PS days cause eurorack is straight up mental.

    Minor update on the new OCD. I tried it Saturday with the Archon. Everything I said above was still true with the Archon. I quickly found a very useful “3rd channel” with each amp. The OCD is more open than the Archon gain channel. The Archon gain channel is more compressed (at least with the volume down where I have to play it at home). So if you want the more open, punchy, touch sensitive gain channel, the OCD is perfect. And you can set it light, medium or a lot of crunch.

    Then I discovered something really “special.” Using the OCD with the Archon clean channel, I then started checking solo boost tones with the EP, Barber GCX, Fulldrive 3, etc. It only took a few seconds, and a minor dial of the GCX to get this incredible tone where the mids dial made this incredible snap on the mids notes. It takes some volume to make this work, and it has to do with the speakers actually working. I was using the PRS 2x12 cab. I played this tone for over 20 minutes and was use in awe of how great it sounded. Then I thought I’d see if I could dial in that tone on the OD channel of the amp, but it was getting close to game time so I stopped. I will try that this week, but even if I can’t get it exactly, the tone I have with the GCX>OCD is incredible.

    This year, not even some picks, priorities were elsewhere. Oh, she bought me some strings from memory....but that was absolutely it.

    If you're referring to me, come on now!!!

    I bought a 17 year old car for a very good deal, which didn't cost me a lot more than a lot of these luxury SUVs I see these soccer moms driving around in all day. Additionally, in the end, this car will likely end up costing me less than those same SUVs. For one, I have no financing or leasing costs, unlike nearly all of those SUVs. Additionally, this car is at the very bottom of its depreciation curve and will likely sell for almost exactly what I paid, if not slightly more. Cannot say the same for said SUVs........

    Carry on!
    Kevin

    I've had a warmoth guitar for about 20 years and never really liked the neck... so I bought a new neck. Since they've come out with roasted maple necks now which don't require a finish, it saves around $100 so it's not too expensive. It should arrive in about 3 more weeks.

    Just broke down and purchased a Hammond Digital Leslie pedal (with AMEX points via Amazon), so it really seems like a gift!
